Neolith opens new North American distribution centre
Sintered-stone manufacturer Neolith has extended its North American reach with a new distribution centre in Atlanta.
Neolith Atlanta is the next phase in a strategic investment in the US and Canadian markets. According to the manufacturer, increased focus in the Canadian and US markets will be complemented with greater investment in advertising, and more broadly, an enhanced suite of tools and services to be unveiled later in 2020.
“The North American surfacing market is a highly competitive and exciting one. Over the past 10 years, supported by our amazing distributors, we have made significant in-roads to become a challenger brand, establishing a strong presence for Sintered Stone,” said Director Mar Esteve Cortes.
The decision to establish the company’s first direct division will support the important work done by Neolith’s network of distributors in this territory, allowing for efficient service to respond to its growing demand.
Stocked with a full range of Neolith colours, patterns, finishes, formats and thicknesses, the new distribution centre will ensure the material is readily available to meet orders quickly.
“For both interior and exterior applications in residential and commercial projects, we are seeing more architects, specifiers, designers and fabricators turning to Neolith for surface solutions. The most effective way to meet this rapidly increasing demand, while supporting our distributors with their sales, is to ensure a robust supply chain with a plentiful stock of slabs which are instantly accessible.”
The announcement follows the recent news that Neolith has achieved ICC-ES accreditation, which signifies that its patented StrongFix System for ventilated façades complies with the provisions of the 2018, 2015, 2012 and 2009 International Building Codes (IBC) and International Residential Codes (IRC).
“The ICC-ES accreditation opens up many opportunities, particularly for cladding. Neolith Atlanta will ensure we can respond quickly when such orders come in and make the construction process as efficient as possible. We are committed to providing the best value to our clients and this move will help establish us as the surface brand of choice for our North American customers,” said Cortes.
